Maxence Caqueret : « On sait où on veut aller »
Lyon midfielder Maxence Caqueret spoke with journalists to discuss the quarterfinal of the Coupe de France against Monaco.

A Coupe de France quarterfinal

“We've just had two good victories in the league. It’s another competition. It will be necessary to win to go to the semifinal. We prepared well for this match because the Coupe de France is also a goal. We have been thinking about this match. We will have to move past this step and then we will switch to something else starting Thursday ... We must continue our momentum. We know where we want to go. We're a big club and we're here to aim as high as possible."

 

Monaco

“They are having a very fine second half of the season. They are on an incredible run, but nothing is won before the game itself. We have a very good team to compete with them. We're going to give it everything. It’s possible that it’s going to be an open game with a lot of goals. We do not know. In any case, we are prepared to play the best possible game."

 

Ten crucial days

“The squad is very focused. We know what we want, we all have the same goals. We work to be at the top level in every game. We are in a good mood… We haven't been playing complete matches all the time. There is no explanation. It's up to us to be more consistent."

 

His relationship with the rest of the midfielders

“I feel good playing with the others. We have shown with Bruno and Paqueta that we have good complementary qualities. There is also Aouar and Mendes. We all know how to play together, there are different ways. It’s important for the collective. We know we are important in building up play ... The return of Aouar is a real plus for the team. We all know his qualities. We have a large squad with a lot of competition. It makes us fight every day. "

 

Playing in a 4-2-3-1

“We are trained to play in several systems. It doesn't change much for me. I am playing in my preferred position."

 

His current form

"I feel good. I'm glad I am getting some playing time. It's good for me. Sidney Govou's compliments are flattering. I have to score more, provide more assists and be more dangerous in the final third. I did a lot playing at youth levels. I have to do this now because it will help the collective. I know I can do it. But I'm not focusing on this, it's not a priority."
